Enough Grapes to Power A House

Yes, pretty soon, a region in Ontario, Canada will be using grapes to power their homes. A nearby winery will provide grapeskins that will be converted into energy, and residents of Niagara will be able to say they’re reading my blog post thanks to grapes.
Converting edible byproducts into energy is a trend us North Americans are slowly catching onto, and hey, maybe we can run our cars on grapes someday too, instead of all that oil.
There’s no stopping us now.
But if you’re like me, and for the moment feel more comfortable eating a Grape Salad than using those grapes to fuel your oven, just remember you didn’t use any energy to make it! Now that Grape and Ginger Tart on the other hand…
